BEIRUT: Lebanon Monday issued arrest warrants for three individuals in absentia, including the two sons of head of the Higher Relief Committee Ibrahim Bashir, on charges of embezzlement and money laundering.
The third arrest warrant Beirut Investigative Judge Ghassan Oweidat approved was against Hasan Youssef Jaber.
Bashir’s sons – Wissan and Sami – both live in Belarus, judicial sources told The Daily Star. Jaber is said to be their accomplice.
HRC head Ibrahim Bashir, his wife, Raja, and another Lebanese couple were charged in November with embezzling public funds and transferring them to private accounts abroad.
The four were also charged with money laundering.
